Teryn and Cian actually walked into the kitchen at the same time as Talis and Dion.
“So, did anyone actually cook today?” Talis asked.
“Sleep sounded like a better idea,” Teryn replied.
“So, we’re making sandwiches then?” Dion asked.
Cian went to the refrigerator and peered inside. “We’ve got leftover baked chicken. Sounds like a plan.”
Companionable silence descended as they worked together to fix their easy meal. They stood around the kitchen island to fix their sandwiches and to eat.
“So, this is cozy,” Teryn ventured.
“It’s weird,” Talis muttered.
“Normal is overrated, remember?” Cian reminded him of his own casual saying.
“Ok, true, but it’s weird knowing we were all doing the same thing and had the same idea after,” Talis replied.
“Pretty sure there were some differences,” Dion added.
“Sex, shower, deep emotional conversation we wouldn’t normally have, then feed,” Teryn listed.
“Ok, that’s beyond weird. It’s creepy,” Dion told her.
“But it explains so much.” Talis smirked at his sister. “My loving sister is already getting mood swings, and she had an emotional moment that I picked up on to have my own.”
Teryn flipped him off and Cian laughed.
“Someone fill me in,” Dion requested. “I’ve clearly missed something.”
“Teryn’s pregnant,” Talis said simply.
“Gods I hate men,” Teryn griped before taking an aggressive bite out of her sandwich.

What are your top 10 favorite books/authors?
Anne Rice, Sherrilyn Kenyon, JR Ward, Christine Feehan, Nora Roberts, J.K. Rowling, Sarah Luddington, Stephen King, P.C. Cast, J.R.R. Tolkien
What book do you think everyone should read?
Memnoch the Devil by Anne Rice.
How long have you been writing?
Since fifth grade. I’m almost 32 years old now.
Do the characters all come to you at the same time or do some of them come to you as you write?
The main characters normally come to me at the same time. Supporting characters come as I write.
What kind of research do you do before you begin writing a book?
First, a search for names to fit the character. Maybe location if it’s not in a setting I’m familiar with.
Do you see writing as a career?
Absolutely, just not a get rich quick type of thing. People often think that the moment you announce yourself as an author, you’re as rich as J.K. Rowling or Stephen King. That’s a level that would be nice but isn’t realistic for every author.
Do you read yourself and if so what is your favorite genre?
I read a little of everything. Fantasy, romance, LGBT, I like variety.
Do you prefer to write in silence or with noise? Why?
Noise. I am suspicious of silence, possibly due to being a parent.
Do you write one book at a time or do you have several going at a time?
Several so I can write to suit my mood
Pen or type writer or computer?
Pen first, then computer. I never liked typerwriters.
Tell us about a favorite character from a book.
Lestat from Anne Rice’s vampire chronicles. He is just so flamboyant, so full of life and complicated.
Advice they would give new authors?
The same advice I took to heart from my favorite author, Anne Rice. That was to write what you want to read. This is why I don’t overly concern myself with the norms of a genre. I write what I want to see in a book.
